Pile of Paintings

By in men, paintings, sketches, watercolour, women

These are simple, but done with different techniques and programs. Up above is purely digital, drawn and painted in Photoshop. The guy below was drawn in Adobe Illustrator according to a pencil sketch, then coloured in Photoshop. I’m happy with the ink lines I’m able to create, and they’re fast to do, too. This strange […]

Monochrome Crew

By in men, sketches, women

It’s fun blogging at quarter to six in the morning. Had nothing better to do, but this was queued up, and ready to go. I think it’s more fun (but more work) telling stories with these people, because they’re all about stories. However, they just appear as I draw/paint them. I don’t sit down saying […]

Leaping Car

By in paintings, sketches, watercolour

This is fun. Call it part of my Blue Period. Easy to add little colours here and there, and underneath. Unlike many people I know, I like painting and drawing machines, though don’t have a fondness for the ruler. I fancy this gives them more personality. I like objects with personality, and strive to put […]

Sunday Things

By in cats, sketches, women

I’m not relating to Sundays much. Thought I’d get some time off, but I’ve got to prepare for a meeting and some work. Still, I found time to sketch these things. Small cat, and some dame. I don’t call them watercolours because they involve the brush pen, and aren’t pure. I like modelling things in […]

Office Worker

Saw this pose on a poster for a play the other day, and drew my memory of it.

The Usual Obsessive Stuff

By in cats, men, sketches, watercolour, women

The usual guys blankly staring, cats, and below, cute chicks. Just because I go out to events doesn’t mean I’m not a strange recluse. It just means there are a lot of events happening. But the video stuff is fun. Takes a long time to upload. My next challenge there is finding music I can […]

Trying to do Zombies

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

That’s my thing at the moment. This is a link to some of my research material. One of those brilliant ideas I hope works, though I wish I had it earlier. We’ll see how it goes. Tough doing creepy monstrous stuff when you’re mainly used to cute and quirky. But always good to expand one’s […]

More junk I’ve been drawing

By in horses, men, sketches, watercolour, women

Haven’t had all that much time, so I’m putting up some odds and ends I’ve drawn. The aging guy heads were copied, more or less, from the book Drawing People, by Barbara Bradley. Flying things, and a nerdy kid. An old-fashioned “War of the Worlds” tripod, and a farmer’s cart. Why? I have no idea.

May Comic Jamming, Arthur, etc.

By in men, sketches, watercolour

The last Thursday in May means the Monthly Montreal Comic Jam. I actually worked on some pages of comics, but it’s more of a get-together for local artists, to share and show off, and also collaborate on things. I got my bud Rick Gagnon to colour this picture of mine above, which turned out swell. […]

Animules, etc.

By in cats, dogs, sketches, watercolour, women

I just like the colour. Lotsa work to do, and I’ve been slacking off. The usual worries, but I hope things will be all right.

Still Painting

By in men, sketches, watercolour, women

Got a new book, called a Canson XL Series Mix Media. So, I’m practicing some painting in it. Here’s what happened. Trying to loosen up, and also get the nice colours goin’.

Another day, more sketches. (AKA: What do I title this?)

By in cats, sketches, women

Drawing a lot lately, because I’ve got some illustrating gigs. These don’t exactly address the gigs, but they keep my hand in, and make drawing fun for me. Hence plenty of sketches. And I’ve got to put them up don’t I? Allegra, my late lamented small black cat, in graphic watercolour form. This is about […]

Brand New Book

By in cats, watercolour, women

Bought a nice new sketch book, at l’Oiseau Bleu, one of the few remaining non-chain art stores in Montreal. I’m going to have to draw some of the architecture in the area around there, because there are interesting Beaux arts and Art Deco, even Art Nouveau buildings and details around there. It’s not a rich […]
